One hut is set aside for officers’ quarters. At one end is the kitchen, then the mess, then officers’ cubicles with the orderly room at the other end. The quarters are furnished with the barest necessary furniture and the food supplied is the Navy ration.  This is the camp of No. 1 Co. We are temporarily attached to this Coy. but will probably be posted to other companies almost immediately. We reported at headquarters and were told we should be free from duty until Monday. Afterwards we went across by the Naval ferry to East Nucdus. The French regiment is quartered here and it was interesting to me to see the strange uniforms. The village itself is small and not very interesting.
